Do you think everyone else on CM is less intelligent than you are?

Legitimate question - we've all seen some very blatant asinine behavior lately, and it seems as if people really believe nobody will figure out what they're up to.

  • No, I don't like to assume anyones level of intelligence. Sometimes I think I just don't get other people or their take on situations. That's life though. Some of the most well educated people I know have problems making a point and have a more difficult time socializing with others.

  • Nope, I believe some are smarter & others are dumber than me. :)

  • I try to assume that everyone has a leg up on me in some area. To claim I know everything and more than anyone else here would not only be ridiculous but would by my admission paint a giant "put-me-in-my-place" target on my back. Besides, arrogance just isn't attractive on anyone, ever.

    So, my general tactic is to assume that everyone truly does know what they are talking about and is qualified to make the statements that they make, UNTIL they prove otherwise. Once someone has proved that they are just an arrogant idiot, then the kid gloves come off and the boxing gloves go on.

  • Okay, I need to start reading the whole question when I open questions. LOL. I'm a little slow this Sunday (or some might think always - whatever). I am obviously lost because I have no idea what anyone is up to. All I know is that I am getting ready to go to Hell (Toys R Us). I guess I will have to try to decipher this later today when enough time allows for my dense self to attempt to understand all of this.

  • What kind intelligent are you talking about?

    Basic reasoning, general knowledge. I'm not suggesting if you have a PhD in physics, do you assume everyone else knows less about physics than you do (they better), but rather, if you constantly lie and contradict yourself, for example, do you assume everyone else is too stupid to notice.

  • So you are just talking about basic common sense intelligence?


    Yes and no. Some people on here are so smart they are stupid.  As in they have no common sense at all.

  • Some...... I mean the endless "can I be pregnant" or "I caught him cheating what should I do" questions, yeah I feel I"m smarter than 98% of those people.

  • Actually quite the reverse, I believe many of the ladies here are more intelligent than I am. Not saying I'm stupid just I know when someone knows more than I do. That's why I vote up more than I actually answer.
